None of our conservation efforts would be possible without the cooperation and coordination of our partners.
Since the bulk of Colorado habitat types include private land, private landowners are some of the most important partners in our conservation work. For that reason, we’ve implemented partnership programs such as
Ranching for Wildlife and the
Private Land Program. Many of our
grants incentivize landowners to assist us in conserving the habitats they own.
For policy and planning reasons, many of our projects involve the
US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Bureau of Land Management. As part of our broad approach to conserving wildlife species, we collaborate across state borders in order to implement consistent and effective strategies for wide-ranging wildlife.
Additionally, some initiatives require the significant services of
wildlife rehabilitators or cooperation with
energy and land development and planning stakeholders.
Not-for-profit organizations are also critical to our work, often represented on our advisory panels and providing funding for special projects.
Great Outdoors Colorado, a nonprofit that invests a portion of
Colorado Lottery proceeds to help conserve and enhance the state's parks, trails, wildlife, rivers and open spaces, makes significant investments through CPW.
Outdoor recreation encompasses a broad range of activities and types of organizations, which is one reason why we host a
Partners in the Outdoors conference every year.
